International Women’s Day – Recognising RMA Women

Event, Opinion

In the digital industry almost twice as many men are employed as women. However, RMA bucks the trend with women making up 50% of its permanent workforce. At RMA and our parent organisation NTT DATA we place great importance on the value of diversity.

Today, we are supporting International Women’s Day to help forge a better working world – a more inclusive, gender equal world. We are joining the #BeBoldForChange campaign by recognising and celebrating the achievements of the women in our office. Here are some of those women who make a great contribution to our company’s success.
